Cutting edge research without having to cut up anything!
For hundreds of years, scientists who wanted to examine a rare fossil might have had to travel halfway around the world. And that is not the only challenge when viewing a small, unique or priceless specimen.
Now a new range of tools provides a chance for researchers anywhere in the world to see a one-of-a-kind specimen, with no fear of damaging it.

Cool Machine... BUT...
Nice technology, BUT, it will not tell us how old a fossil is. Those guesstimations are up to everyone else, and their world views.
Also, if there is no manipulating of the computer programing, and HONEST scientists are interpreting the data, I believe, the machine will prove every creature is unique, and therefore, no evolution. Those transitional fossils are still ABSENT, just as Stephen J. Gould, Niles Eldredge, Colin Patterson, and others, have admitted.
